An object 5 millimeters high is located 15 millimeters in front of a plane mirro. How far from the mirror is the image located?


The focal length f of a plane mirror is infinity and 1/f = 0. The optical equation becomes

1/Do + I/Di = 1/f = 0

Do is the distance to the object and Di is the distance to the image (measured on the same side of the mirror).

Therefore Do = -Di The minus sign in front of Di means that the image appears on the other side of the mirror, an equal distance away from it.


wrong answer it has to be 5.0 millimeters or 7.5 millimeters or 15 millimeters or 30 millimeters


which one is it though?
